I'm new to this forum, but I've been running MAME since 2006.
I built my MAME Cabinet in 2006 and enjoyed many years of gaming.
Last year, I decided to rebuild my Arcade Cabinet, new Computer, Monitor, Control panel and all new software and front-end (HyperSpin).
My old ROM Set was 0.104 and worked great.
With my rebuild, I'm upgrading everything, so I got a new ROM set that is almost 3 times the number of games in the set (and much larger), but I've looked and can't determine what MAME version it is. I really don't need the latest and greatest Roms, but I've read that my MAME version needs to match my ROM set.
The zip files all have a create date of 6/8/2010, is this how I determine the version?
Would I use mame0139s.zip (11 Aug 2010)? (how do I get a NoNag, HiScore version?) I know I will want a x64 version (yes, my computer is x64)
Thanks for your help, excited about getting back into this after a couple year hiatus)
